Actually Facebook supports vcards, and every account has a read-only one with
their name already in it (kind of like what Google Talk does). The problem
with Psi seems to be that Facebook doesn't like the way the vcard request is
performed. Specifically, Psi uses some undocumented XML attributes in the
Since these attributes are pointless anyway, I've removed them for 0.15 and
Facebook now works for me without any nags.
I think they are being overly restrictive though. Typically you're supposed
to just ignore XML you don't understand. So it would be nice if they would
solve this on their end too, to fix interop with existing Psi versions...
